Format: Audio CD
Dizzy Gillespie's style was the nemesis of Miles Davis's. Introspection doesn't seem to have been a word often used in Diz's vocabulary, musical or otherwise. His playing did have a 'dizzying' effect always putting speed, dynamism and drama at the forefront of his performances. On this collection Gillespie's talent as a bandleader and musical arranger also come to the fore. He had of course a great theoretical knowledge of music and wasn't afraid to pass this on to other musicians by way of help and encouragement. With the big bands here he manages to register bebop lines in a larger sound and the over-all enthusiasm shows through.
Throughout this collection Gillespie never loses sight of the desire to swing despite his revolutionary tendacy to subvert traditional chord structure. 'Hot Mallets' swings like hell over great xelophone playing that also features on 'Blue Rhythm Fantasy'. The first version of '52nd Street Theme' is amazingly fluent while the second version goes in for greater improvisation. The bebop standard 'A Night In Tunisia' gets its greatest rendition here in its original form with Diz's no-holds emphatic sound. Gillespie's generosity to other musicians can be heard on 'Ol' Man Rebop' where each soloist takes his turn exercising his own bop interpretations. The most incessantly driving tracks on these CD's are the two versions of 'Anthropology' which rock like crazy. I also loved the rolling end of 'Ow!' and the swinging shout of 'Cool Breeze'. With 'Cubana Be' and 'Cubana Bop', Gillepie moves into even greater experimental territory. Each display a menancing rhythm like the growing stampede of an elephant herd backed up by Gillespie's elephant sounding shrieks on the trumpet.

The two compact discs of "The Complete Rca Victor Recordings" show how flaming was Gillespie's youth. The first three recordings come from the gig in Teddy Hill's band, year 1937, when Dizzy was nineteenth and played somewhat in the style of Roy Eldridge. Also included in the albun is one track, "Hot Mallets", by an all stars band led by Lionel Hampton (Benny Carter, Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webester, Charlie Christian..., wow!). And finally we have Dizzy as a leader, from 1946 to 1949, mostly with his funny, visionary and seminal big band. The album ends with the famous tracks by the Metronome All Stars in 1949 ("Overtime" and "Victory Ball"). The music in these two cds is, of course, one of the highest peaks in modern jazz. But this edition is remarkable also for the booklet, that includes a very detailed discography and liner notes by Ira Gitler, legendary critic and jazz historian.
